4:05pm, Day 3 India need 72 to complete a clean sweep. West Indies dragged it along a little with Holder and Ambris in this session, but the damage was done a long time ago. And it was done mostly by Umesh Yadav, who follows Kapil Dev (twice) and Javagal Srinath on the list of Indian fast bowlers who have taken 10-fors at home. He attacked the stumps throughout and found great reward, as he had in the first innings. Jadeja got in on it in the end too, picking up three at almost no cost. India's innings will begin at 4:15pm, which means they'll bat for 45 minutes this evening. That is if we go by schedule. Officially, there are 15 overs left in the day. They might look to squeeze those in and go past time if the light holds and a result is in sight.

Here is Umesh. Only two Indian fast bowlers have taken 10-fors in India. He's on nine.

DBS : "Hello Varun: With Umesh bowling so well, now we have Umesh, Shami, Ishant, Bhuvi, Bumrah and Pandya as our fast bowlers for Australia. I think India will have to chose 2 out of Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep for the squad. I don't see India taking all 9 bowlers mentioned above and only 6 proper batsmen." --- I'd imagine Kuldeep won't make that tour. That'll be five pacers and three allrounders on tour.
